Observation 215976: Ganoderma curtisii (Berk.) Murrill

When: 2015-09-12

Collection location: Dunwoody, Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: GP Van Eron (reishiTea)

Specimen available

Good red-orange color expression in today’s find. This makes me question more if curtisii and lucidum should really be broken out into distinct species? Perhaps environmental factor contribute to color expression. Orange tinted spores.

Pleasant odor (imo), similar to most polypores but ganoderma has a more …. sweet/floral note in comparison to other polypores
